I am pleased to be able to announce that all three volumes of the trilogy containing all my progressive rock reviews and interviews from 1991-2006 are now available. This is the most comprehensive look at the scene ever published, containing reviews which were written at the time by someone close to the scene, instead of looking back into it from the present day. With approximately half a million words and nearly 1000 pages over the three volumes, it is no wonder that Record Collector said, “A book that will be quickly referred to as “a bible””.

Volume 1
Foreword by Stu Nicholson, comments on rear cover by Greg Spawton and Clive Nolan.
